In this paper we present a procedure for removing ruling lines from a handwritten document image that does not break existing characters. We take advantage of common ruling line properties such as uniform width, predictable spacing, position vs. text, etc. The proposed process has no effect on document images without ruling lines, hence no a priori discrimination is required. The system is evaluated on synthetic page images in five different languages.
